As with wine and coffee, cocoa from different parts of the world has different flavour notes.
We use high quality, single-origin chocolate from small producers who take care over their product. Farmers are paid above fair-trade standards, with the chocolate coming to the UK as directly as possible.
We use single-origin cocoa, produced in the region where it's grown. Once the cocoa beans have been fermented and dried, they are roasted freshly at a local facility. It allows the work to be done by people close to the beans and having knowledge of the growing and early processes. Keeping the production local helps to raise the value of cocoa for the country of origin, helping to support the economies of the growers' countries.
